The end of September marked a record-breaking 29th edition of the celebrated Monaco Yacht Show. Port Hercules played host to an impressive fleet of 125 superyachts with a total worth of around €4 billion - as estimated in a joint analysis by the Monaco Yacht Show and official intelligence partner SuperYacht Times.

Yacht builders, brokers and designers took up the prime quayside real-estate; tender and water toy manufacturers premiered some exciting new goodies, taking their stands on Quai Antoine Ier along with a car deck showcasing 30 collector or custom-built cars and motorcycles, and nautical equipment manufacturers set up tents alongside country pavilions on Darse Sud and Quai Albert Ier.Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesThe show, running from 25th to 29th of September, saw a whole host of announcements regarding superyacht projects, new technologies and joint ventures: Baglietto announced a concept developed with Francesco Paszkowski, Perini Navi presented its new Falcon Rig Gallery range as well as a joint venture with Dykstra Naval Architects and Magma Structures under the 'Falcon Rig' name, Gulf Craft introduced an electrically powered tri-deck - the Majesty 120 - and Fincantieri announced its 81-metre concept Vis, a six-deck yacht with advanced technologies and smart architectural solutions.Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesOver 200 VIPs visited 50 yachts, with the majority of these high-profile visitors coming from the US, Russia, England, China and India.
